Monster Hunter 3 update adds cross-region online play

Plus support for off-TV GamePad play

Capcom has released a new Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Wii U update enabling cross-region online play


Once installed, European and US servers are merged, allowing players in both regions to play together in games of up to four players.

The update also adds compatibility with Wii U's off-TV GamePad play feature.

Capcom said in its original announcement that this update was developed in response to "very loud and clear" community feedback.
